Savings Up To 30 Percent
Detailed In Brochure On
Avicon's New Fuel Monitor
A new Monitor 205 marine en- gine fuel-efficiency system bro- chure is available from Avicon
Corporation of Scottsdale, Ariz., illustrating and describing fea- tures which can provide fuel savings up to 30 percent for ves- sel owners.
The four-color brochure defines user performance benefits of the
Monitor 205 microprocessor dis- play unit, sensors and optional printer, and analog display units.
Digital display keyboard controls are captioned in an illustration shown across two pages so that every function can be clearly un- derstood. A fuel-performance curve illustrates optimum fuel efficiency speeds. Information on dealer installation, operation re- quirements, size, and power spec- ifications are outlined.
The Avicon Monitor 205 pro- vides information on fuel flow, speed through water, RPM, pro- peller slip, time and distance to waypoint. After initial program- ming the Monitor 205 presents all the data needed for evaluat- ing performance and for setting up fuel-saving procedures at the push of a button. Early warning alarms may also be programmed for critical parameters of engine speed or fuel consumption and to provide easy detection of en- gine malfunctions which could require costly repair. Depending on vessel size and operation, Avi- con reports this system can pay for itself in one month's time.
The Monitor 205 can be used for single or twin engine, diesel or steam, and with light and heavy fuel oils. A two-year lim- ited warranty is provided.
